The distinction between dermatofibroma (DF), dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans (DFSP), and other benign and malignant cutaneous spindle cell lesions frequently requires immunohistochemical staining. CD34 and factor XIIIa are the most commonly used immunostains; however, they may exhibit aberrant expression and introduce the potential for misdiagnosis. There is some data supporting that p75 ...

Endophthalmitis caused by fungi is commonly diagnosed around the world in apparently healthy and immunocompromised individuals. An accurate clinical diagnosis for endophthalmitis confirmed by laboratory techniques is essential for early treatment with antifungal drugs, such as amphotericin B, imidazoles, and other antifungals. Here, we review endophthalmitis caused by fungi according ...
